Beyond Horizons at Atelier Nord ANX

The video programme Beyond Horizons premiered during Tromsø International Film Festival 2015. Atelier Nord is please to announce that Beyond Horizons will also be shown at Atelier Nord ANX (Olaf Ryes plass 2, 0552 Oslo) from the 15th of January to the 8th of February.

The films shown in the program also relate to a tradition within visual art dealing with Northern Norway.
